So why wasn't Pac declared the winner when he was absolutely the aggressor vs Mayweather?

Apparently those judges valued the stats more.

I'm not saying it was a good call here, but I'm also not saying that it's totally baffling given how decisions like that are apt to go. Watching from home, listening to biased Teddy Atlas who was in the bag for Manny, that fight looked one way. Sitting ringside in a judges box, watching Horn as the aggressor, listening to that crowd react to Horn as the aggressor, it's not hard to comprehend how they make a homer-decision since the fight looks very different from that vantage.

The real winner was boxing itself.
Mayweather/Pacquiao was such a dud, after such a build-up... This fight was shown for free, on cable, with several undercard belts, and the main card, controversy notwithstanding, was a great ****ing scrap. If boxing can get a few more cards like this in the bag- major fighters, free on either broadcast or cable, exciting fights, big enough to be a real 'event' like this one was- it's possible it (boxing) might start gaining younger eyeballs again that have been taken away by MMA.

Honestly, I don't really understand how this show is so great. I watch it, basically on the edge of my seat every week, and have excruciating pain/sadness when the credits roll, and almost nothing happens. It's crazy. It's such a slow moving show, but so well put together that it's really hard to believe. At least this week we had a courtroom set. Normally it's just Chuck's house, the office, and whatever Mike is doing.

I guess this is just ground zero in film school for proof of how far well-written characters can take you.

You do realize that pretty much this whole episode was what would be considered the climax of some award winning, classic movies like The Caine Mutiny and A Few Good Men, right?

inb4 BG praises the UK for their resolve to make Britain Great again and Scram posts that the brexit is a natural consequence of a society broken by leftist idealism.

Meh, I know I'm never going to "win" an argument against scram, or any of the Trump nut huggers here. But I'm also not the only one reading the last few pages who doesn't buy this tired schtick that the Liberals and political correctness are ruining society. Nobody else wants to say anything though, and I wouldn't want a random straggler who wandered in here to think we were all a bunch of hateful republicans with a "leftist" complex ;)

you can spin those numbers any way you want.

First of all, start by comparing the crime rates to the subset of America that is actually, erm, comparable. try: bottom 10% income bracket in the same areas as these illegal aliens are entering the country and living. An illegal alien living in a low income, crime infested area is more likely to commit a crime than Joe Smith in the suburbs? no freakin way.

Also, I know you guys aren't counting murders and crimes committed to other illegal aliens. They are the scum of the earth, who cares right?


Look, get out the illegal aliens, I don't care, but if you think this is a serious issue that actually affects a large or even moderate sized proportion of American people to the degree that is being depicted, you are drinking way too much kool aid. The fact that this has become the #1 talking point for the republicans in this election is beyond laughable. And if you think Trump, racist or not, isn't pandering to the lowest common denominator who just want those stinky Mexicans out of their damn country, then you are blissfully naïve.

His supporters arent people you can reach. The goal should be making him look as ridiculous as possible to moderates.

Most people on all sides can't be swayed by facts. Politics is mostly tribal and people feel things, they don't really think about them.

Does it? Do we have any context at all or video? If there is a video then made it would say a lot.

Yes, we have context.

We have the 30% or something of Trump supporters who say that the slaves shouldn't have been freed. We have the white supremacists organizations who have come out in support for Trump. We have the absolute tidal wave of - and this is only the vocal and unabashed ones we're talking about - explicitly racist support all over social media for Trump.

And all of that is just the vocal segment. That isn't even accounting for the, almost certainly, larger group of those who silently, or quietly, or only in certain company, or anonymously are racists - anywhere from a mild to excessive degree.

Yeah, there's a lot of context.

So, yeah, maybe that is just a perfectly timed picture of a an old white woman doing a new type of yoga pose she is trying out that, in her old age, she didn't realized looked like a Nazi salute. Something like that may be happening there. That is actually possible, if unlikely.

But who gives a fuck? Even if she isn't tossing up a Nazi salute - the picture says plenty, you oblivious, "skeptical when skeptical is stupid or irrelevant" imbecile.
